BxCHL’s goal with the Holiday Care Kits for the Homeless initiative was to provide care kits to homeless individuals in our community that resided in The Living Room. This initiative was organized by BxCHL’s Community Service member Stephanie and Dr. Andrea Littleton. The Living room is the Bronx’s only 24-hour drop-in center for street homeless adults.
Together BxCHL served our Homeless community by gathering resources and distributing Holiday Care Kits to about 150 homeless individuals. Our members collaborated to make a difference in our community by buying care items, getting donations, preparing holiday care kits, and distributing them at The Living Room. We were able to give back to our community through the gift of giving. We shared our holiday spirit to make a difference in the lives of homeless individuals.
If you or someone you know is homeless and needs a place to stay, please contact the living room at (718) 893-3606. The Living Room is located on 800 Barretto St, The Bronx, NY 10474, taking the 2,5,6 trains or the select 6 bus can leave individuals closest to the facility.
